Shenandoah Elopement

April 8, 2021

Shenandoah is such a hotspot for elopements. The mountains, the air, the hills, the rocks, trails and everything needed for a perfect elopement.

The light before sunset is soft, and glowy, and so real. For this elopement, it was just the bride and groom.

Jacqueline and Brandon met while in high school. After a few years they reconnected and were married. He is in the Navy and she is a hair and makeup artist. They have three lovely children together. Having a civil ceremony wasn’t what she really wanted to have, however, it was all that could be done at that time.

After contacting me and chatting a bit, we officially decided to have their elopement at a location that gave us enough light and scenery to have for their renewal. There was no officiant. No one else there but these two. They really wanted to make sure they had their special alone moment that was all for them.

We rented a dress from Dalliance Bespoke. He wore a nice laid back suit pant and shirt. Something casual and laid back. The flowers were picked from nearby blossom trees and moss from the fields. Hair and Makeup was done by the bride and things just went off without a hitch. No clouds, full access to the sun and sky. Loved every moment of this session.

Intimate weddings and elopements can be booked through my website. Openings start in June through December.
